Strobe

MAC has relaunched its Strobe cream, and the launch includes a set of Lip Conditioner Sticks with the same great “Strobe” pearl that the creams have. If you’re unfamiliar with Strobe, it was/is a cream that has shimmer in it so that your skin looks like it’s glowing when you wear it. It’s a nice […]

You all know that I try a lot of products and some times it’s hard to get excited about each and every one. And then every once in a while I come across a product that completely blows all the others out of the water, and I just can’t wait to talk about it. The […]

Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector

Clinique has a new product out this month and it’s called Even Better Skin Tone Corrector. Let me tell you, the texture, feel, and look of tis product is almost exactly like another product that I love a lot. It’s Estee Lauder Idealist. Funny story related to the Idealist product, actually. I was at a […]

The New Cold Cream

If you’re old school then it’s likely that you’re already familiar with the ways of using cold cream as a face cleanser at the end of the night. Women would put this cream on and then wipe it off with a tissue, taking their makeup with it. It was called “cold” because it had a […]

Facial Cleansers for Dry Skin

Everyone has dry skin on their face at this time of year – even us combination skin gals need something a little extra for our faces and that’s why I’m going to recommend that you try an oil cleanser. It sounds strange, I know, but the newest cleansers rinse clean and leave no residue! Try […]

L’Oreal Wrinkle De-Crease Collagen Skin Remodeller

Of course, I’ve got to talk about skin moisturizers when I talk about dry skin. L’Oreal Wrinkle De-Crease Collagen Skin Remodeller is new and was brought on the market when L’Oreal saw the success of their other Wrinkle De-Crease products. This is a great moisturizer but it’s not at all greasy and absorbs into the […]

Suncare… an Introduction

Once again, I’ve been looking through what you’re interested in reading about and I’ve seen an overwhelming number of requests for suncare and summer-related products! I think we’re all so sick of the winter that it’s more fun to dream about the months ahead. As I was telling a friend today: “We’re in mid-February, which […]

Mindy Shear Lip Balm

My guess is going to be that most of my readers have not heard of Mindy Shear Cosmetics. That’s cool, though. Before the Canadian Makeup Show, I hadn’t heard of Mindy Shear or her cosmetics company. She’s based in Montreal where she owns and operates two stores. But in any case, lets get down to […]

J.R. Watkins Lip Balm

I’ve told you about J.R. Watkins before – I am smitten with their mango-scented hand lotion and body butter, and recommend the brand highly. Some time, somewhere, I received their lip balm in a goody bag, and I’ve been using it non-stop. It goes on easily, it’s just slightly minty, and it really works! It’s […]

MAC Moisturelush

Since it’s the kind of moisturizer that I wouldn’t ordinarily go for, I wanted to really use MAC’s Moisturelush for a while before I reviewed it. This cream is very moisturizing but has a light texture that makes it easy to smooth into skin without having it feel too heavy. Moisturelush will be a godsend […]
